  • Reporting a narrower controlling interest net loss of U.S.$155 million during the third quarter of 2013 from a loss of U.S.$203 million in the same period last year.

Fernando A. González, Executive Vice President of Finance and Administration, said, “We are pleased to report continued growth in operating EBITDA on a year-over-year basis supported by the increase in our volumes in most of our regions and an increase in our consolidated prices in local-currency terms for our three main products on a year-over-year basis. We continue to be focused on our company-wide efforts to improve our operating efficiencies and the value we generate from our asset base while delivering better value to our customers.
